Sneak Peek: Ava {LITTLE WONDER}

This is the second time I have photographed Ava. The first time last fall she was just a little thing, with the cutest spiky hair I’d ever seen! Talk about a cutie (who obivously has a well-stocked closet!) She has such a sweet demeanor for her age, talks a bunch and is all about double high-fives.


This time Ava brought along her grandparents for a few pictures (and perhaps one for Grandma’s wall)


Will you look at this adorable-ness? I adore her outfit, Katie!


This is her smile, I love the mischevious look in her eyes!


Outfit #2, about as perfect for fall photos as could be!




And we finished the session downtown, capturing the very last of the fading light…perfect!

 Katie, Jim and Ava, thanks for coming down for such a fun (and cold) session! Your little girl is growing up so fast, and she is SO cute! I can’t wait to show you the rest!
